However, Mongols exhibit a vast range of physical characteristics and the term should be taken as a group of people bound together by a common language and history. Western Europeans lived in great fear of the Mongols in the thirteenth century. At this time, the Mongols were at the height of their power and controlled much of Europe and Asia. The Mongol Empire stretched from the China Sea in the east to the Caspian Sea in the west. From north to south, it stretched from Siberia to central China.
It was a pattern that would be repeated throughout the short but highly eventful period of Mongol conquests: just when they had the momentum on their side, they pulled back from the attack to spend months upon months in bickering over who should take leadership. In this case, nearly three years passed before Genghis’s sons agreed that the youngest, Ogodai (r. 1229-41), should rule. Ogodai, however, lacked his father’s vision as well as his ruthlessness, and though the Mongol realms would grow considerably in the years that followed, the driving force behind their expansion was gone.

Third, he hoped to form an alliance with the Mongols so that he could persuade them from invading Christian territory and to form a 20 S C I E N C E A N D I T S possible partnership against the Islamic people.
